Beautiful. And tragic.
In the comments on the original post, there was some discussion of what the image brings to mind. One commenter, Mad Insomniac, said the following:
'I keep thinking about Lincoln's Gettysburg Address when I look at that photo, especially the last two sentences:
"It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth."'
Amen brother, amen.
